Healthy and Safe Swimming Week 2015 takes place May 18-24, 2015, marking the 11th anniversary of this observance. Each year, this week before Memorial Day focuses on simple steps swimmers can take to help ensure a healthy and safe swimming experience for everyone. The theme for Healthy and Safe Swimming Week 2015 is Make a Healthy Splash: Share the Fun, not the Germs. It focuses on the role of swimmers, aquatics and beach staff, residential pool owners, and public health officials in preventing drowning, pool chemical injuries, and outbreaks of illnesses.
